I am very passionate about music and oboe, so I can provide lots of important info about college auditions and prepping for an upcoming concert! I have played many pieces from the standard oboe repertoire and have learned many of the prominent orchestral excerpts for oboe! I can also help with any reed making questions!

Hello! I am a recent graduate from UCLA, where I received a degree in Oboe Performance. I have been playing the oboe for almost 8 years now! I am very passionate about music, the oboe, and reed making. I have played with numerous musical groups in San Diego and Los Angeles. I look forward to any future students!
